In a new interview, the Dancing With The Stars pro opened up about her new relationship with entrepreneur extraordinaire, JT Torregiani.

"He's been super supportive and I couldn't ask for anyone better," she told PEOPLE Magazine on Sept. 22. "We used to hang out in the same circle and just connected over the summer."

Burke and Torregiani were friends for 10 years before they found their platonic love turning more romantic. 

"It's been really hard over the last few years to find someone who really appreciates what I do, and also still has his own business, his own life," Burke explained to the magazine. "It's been a match made in heaven! It's changed me. I've been a lot happier as a person." 

Torregiani owns and operates various restaurants and nightclubs, including the famous Warwick and Aventine Hollywood.

On Monday night, Torregiani took time out of his hectic schedule to watch Burke perform at Dancing With The Stars, where she tore up the dance floor with partner Antonio Sabato Jr.

"He was so happy for me. He's so nurturing and supportive. We are attached at the hip right now. We're in the phase where we constantly want to be together," she said.

This isn't Torregiani's first celeb-girlfriend. The nightlife mogul dated Paula Abdul in 2007, and was once in the running to appear on ABC's Bachelor. However, Torregiani turned down the role for a more traditional relationship.
